Threads takes place in the Kingdom of Vogueland, whose Emperor is focused on being the best dressed monarch in the universe. And, he needs new clothes! Out goes the call for designers. He’s chosen the best! But, are his new clothes as wonderful as they say they are? Whom can he trust to tell him? Enter the lords and ladies, knights, designers, jesters — a full array of characters who bring the story and the music to life. Threads has music, humor, color and movement — something for everyone, young and old! Bring your children, grandchildren, friends and yourselves to this Orange artistic endeavor.
